The Casting Dock

Indian Princess.

This was just too good not to share. I alluded to it a couple weeks ago and even got a couple requests to share the goodness–the people wanted to see with their own two eyes. I couldn’t blame them.

Allow me to explain.

A couple weeks ago Jerry and I went to a birthday shindig that was themed as a Princess Party.

And it was legit.

Most people showed up in one of these fellas,

and two lovely ladies even dusted these guys off and gave ‘em another whirl.

So yeah, the people came to play. And they brought their A games.

This thang was fancaaaaaay and very classy. Old prom dresses, bridesmaids dresses, WEDDING gowns.

LE-GIT princess party. There was even organized waltzing. With a live violin.

And then there was Jenna.

Jenna decided that her party dress of choice was a $6.99 thrift store buy. And I couldn’t be happier that she did. It’s velvety, it’s velorey, it’s taffetta-y; it’s got all kindsa 80s prom written all over it. I must admit, there were about 7 seconds after she walked in the door that I thought, Wait, I’m positive that she’s definitely kidding, right? I double-checked in my mind–Is there any way this is legit?–before I just lost it.

I mean, didya see that bow in the back? It’s the real kicker.

Anyway, Jenna’s hilarious. She never takes herself too seriously and will go the extra mile to pull off an awesome prank or get a good laugh. She leads worship at my church and seriously has the best voice that I have ever heard in person. I am entranced when she sings. She’s going on a missions trip to India with our church this summer and is selling her music to raise money, so snag some songs and support this princess or just have a little listen and let the worries of your day melt away. Either way, she’ll dig sharing her tunes. I just know it.

Oh, and while we’re still riding the “All About Jenna” train, she’s got a nifty blog too. check it.

That looks like a fun party! I think that $7 is a great bargain for a party dress.

Good job Jenna.

Whenever I go to a costume event, I always place a very very strict budget cap on my costume expense.

So the middle green dress was my girls, but we ditched the bow and went with mocha. :) That dress is funny though! Totally think it was in Pretty in Pink.
